On April 15, 2013, two b*mbs went off near the end of the Boston Marathon. Three people were killed and hundreds more were hurt. Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who are brothers, did the attack, which sent shock waves through Boston and the rest of the country.
No one is sure why the Tsarnaev brothers did what they did, but their actions led to a huge manhunt and one of the most publicized trials in recent history. The b*mbings at the Boston Marathon are a sad reminder that violence can happen for no reason in our world today.
Boston Marathon Bombing
Former New England Patriots guard Joe Andruzzi, the Joe Andruzzi Foundation, and his wife Jen, who has completed the race five times, were all smiles at the start of the 2013 Boston Marathon. “It was a lovely day. The weather was excellent. It was hot. “I recall the sun being hot on our faces as we stood at the finish line,” said Jen Andruzzi.
But their happiness quickly descended into chaos. I merely recall holding hands while pondering what had just occurred while standing at the finish line. Recalling, Joe Andruzzi. Within a span of 14 seconds, two explosions happened. “And then the second one, and then you heard everybody, and then you saw everybody running,” Jen Andruzzi remarked.
At that year’s marathon for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation, which aids families affected by cancer, twenty-one runners participated. Joe Andruzzi recalled hearing someone shout, “We have to get these fences down so we can get the ambulances down the road.” “I simply reacted; I didn’t think. My wife immediately came to my side and responded along with me.

Three girls were carrying a woman on their backs, as seen by Jen Andruzzi. “I crossed the street quickly, pleaded with them to let me assist, and picked her up. Actually, that was their mother.” She was struck by debris, according to Joe Andruzzi.
The husband and wife are taking stock of the suffering and advancement made ten years later. Joe Andruzzi said, “Time heals all wounds, but wounds like those are sometimes harder to heal.” Jen Andruzzi said,
“I think of all the wonderful things that have happened in the last ten years, and I think that is what lifts us up.”
On Monday, April 17, that’s what needs to inspire us, she said.
